Capricorn Dec 26, 1975 Los Angeles Actor, Director and Writer
Hunter Carson is an American actor, screenwriter, producer, and director.
Carson was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of actress Karen Black and actor, producer, screenwriter and director L. M. Kit Carson. He is stepson of Stephen Eckelberry and stepbrother of Celine Eckelberry, Stephen's daughter. He made his first national appearance in October 1976, at the age of nine months, when his mother hosted "Saturday Night Live." During her opening monologue, Black held Hunter in her arms the entire time. Carson's first acting role was in the film Paris, Texas, portraying the character of Hunter Henderson. The film Paris, Texas was adapted for the screen by his father, L. M. Kit Carson. Hunter Carson received strong reviews for his performance in the film. He then starred in the 1986 remake of Invaders from Mars, where he co-starred with his mother Karen Black.
He played Bud Bundy in an unaired early pilot of Married... with Children. He played a "crazy killer boyfriend" in the 2010 horror film She's Crushed.
He co-directed with Alejandro Itkin the 2013 feature film Single in South Beach, a romantic drama starring Kevin Sorbo. He also directed short With It, about a failed hitman, which Andrew Dansby says echoes the offbeat yet deliberate and contemplative approach of Wenders in Paris, Texas.
